AWANA – Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed
2nd Timothy 2:15 – “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
Our Mission Statement comes from Matthew 28:19-20 – “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” God commanded this of all of us as believers and we here at Greenview keep this at the forefront in our AWANA Ministry by encouraging both leaders and kids to further their walk with God and invite friends to join us. We pray the AWANA prayer: Our prayer is that all children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
Working to REACH KIDS, EQUIP LEADERS, AND CHANGE THE WORLD.
AWANA takes place on Sunday nights September 16th, 2018 – April 14th, 2019 from 5:30-7pm, registration starts at 5:15pm. AWANA is for kids ages 3 years old (by September 1st) through 5th grade.
Each night kids participate in the opening ceremony, have a Bible lesson, memorize Scripture, and have game time – all of these aspects coming together to help kids grow in their relationship with God.
We have several special events throughout the year as well as weekly theme nights. We kicked off the year with a carnival and proceeded to an AWANA Sunday where the kids lead our morning Worship Service, bi-monthly SAP nights – Store, Awards, and Parents nights, Grand Prix, AWANA Games, and Bible Quizzing. Our calendar has all of the dates when these events take place. (can we attach a calendar?)
Right now we have about 90 kids registered to participate in AWANA. We have 40 leaders who are trained and cleared, a team of qualified individuals who are designated to lock doors, peruse the grounds, and ensure the safety of all the children. We will also look to reopen Puggles as God leads us to, which allows the participation of children not 3 before September first and any 2 year old to participate.
